OptionsHouse has made a big move to begin accepting international clients. Starting immediately, international clients from 21 different countries will be eligible to setup individual and/or joint accounts through OptionsHouse.
Who is Eligible?
The 21 countries eligible are: Australia, Bahamas, Belize, Brazil, Chile, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Oman, Panama, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, and United Arab Emirates
How it Works
OptionsHouse has setup an “International Accounts” page with all the information you’ll need to get started and get your account funded. If you have any questions, OptionsHouse has a FAQ page as it relates to International Accounts.
The list of online equity brokers that support non-US citizen clients isn’t a very long one, and that’s one of the reasons this announcement means so much. StockBrokers.com has put together a list of the best International Stock Brokers in 2014.
Keep in mind that StockBrokers.com currently has a special promotion going with OptionsHouse where new clients can open and fund an account and trade commission-free until April 15th.
